Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the President, gave this illumination while responding to theSunday Punch daily paper where the president was highlighted among unmistakable Nigerians the paper claims have certificate scandals.
Mr. Shehu said the president was not in the classification of Nigerian pioneers with flawed authentications.
He urged the Punch editors to refresh their records to abstain from committing this rehashed error.
The announcement read: “In response to your main story at the beginning of today Sunday, March 26, 2017, we wish to vehemently express that President Muhammadu Buhari does not fit into your categorization of pioneers with testament outrages since he bears none that is on accessible records.
“Over the span of the challenge for the workplace of the President in 2015, various wild, untrue and noxious assertions were made against him with a specific end goal to prevent him from challenging for the workplace in the race.
“The issue of declarations was raised against him however the battle effectively managed the affirmations by giving proof that in addition to the fact that he was met all requirements to run, he had a far higher scholastic capability than is required by the constitution. Subsequently, he went ahead to keep running for the workplace and in the long run won.
“Since the motivation behind the test was principal to prevent him from being a competitor in that race, the challengers either deliberately pulled back or relinquished the cases not long after he won and every one of them were along these lines struck off by the courts.”
The presidential assistant along these lines kept up that president had no declaration case holding tight his neck.
